Can't pass the screaming lady...
« on: February 18, 2011, 12:57:19 PM »
Hi!
so i have try many things, including putting pees in my ears, but i can't find how to make her stop screaming. I assume it has something to do with the shell (little mermaid style, steal her voice and all that), but it doesn't work.
so pleaaase, help me... (btw, I'm French, so I apologise for all the language errors)

Also I love that you tried/thought of putting peas in your ears! XD

I had trouble with this one because between my integrated video and 1920x1080 resolution, it got real laggy when she started screaming and I didn't realize I could do anything else before it was too late.  I played the game at 1280x720 from there on and didn't have any more trouble.

I just finished episode 3 and wanted to say thanks.  It was very good.  I did run into problems with it crashing periodically as others have reported but saved enough that it was only a minor setback.

I gotta say this part was very confusing simply because if you use just the shell on her the narrator says something like "graham wants to make the voice stop, not save it for later", which for me means "this inventory item is the wrong way to go". So i never tried it again even after i put in the flower. It's very misleading, imo.

Well the shell never does work on her, so that was a perfectly safe assumption.
